Integrated washland management for flood defence and biodiversity (ENRR598)

In the context of growing interest in finding sustainable solutions to flood management in England and Wales, this study set out to determine the extent to which benefits to flood management and biodiversity can be achieved through an integrated approach to the creation and management of washlands. For the purpose of the study, a washland is defined as an area of the floodplain that is allowed to flood or is deliberately flooded by a river or stream for flood management purposes, with potential to form a wetland habitat.
